Charcoal Water Filter – 8 pack
Zero waste, reusable and compostable, Bamboo charcoal water filters are a refreshingly simple and natural way of filtering tap water. Just leave it in a jug filled with tap water and it will slowly filter out impurities such as chlorine and chloramines make your water tastier and free from typical tap water odour. An added benefit of using bamboo charcoal water filters is that it “mineralises” the water during initial usage by slowly releasing minerals – potassium, magnesium, etc. – into the water.
After using the bamboo charcoal water filters for around 2-6 months, don’t throw it away! Charcoal also regulates moisture, reduces odours, inhibits mould and keeps food fresh. You can be creative and give your charcoal a second life, for example in:
– mouldy kitchen and bathroom corners
– places you keep food and fruits (e.g. the fridge, bread bin, fruit bowl)
– smelly places (e.g. the fridge, loo, shoes)
– places you want to keep very dry (e.g. chests of drawers)
Make sure the pieces are completely dry before re-using. If you place them in a mild environment like chests of drawers, you can more or less use forever.
In tougher places like the bathroom or the fridge, the charcoal may start looking a bit tired after a few months. Occasionally put them out in the sun and let breathe if you want to keep them in good condition. Re-use for 6-12 months.
